One simple thing that I really love about Badger is their cute mascot. They have badgers in all sorts of scenes on their products -- you can view (and read about) some of their balms and lip balms at my previous post here. The soap I received to review is the Lemongrass and Ginger Botanical Body Soap, which is handcrafted with organic shea butter and extra virgin olive oil.
As you can see from the photo above, Badger Soaps are "true soaps." They are only made of saponified organic oils, butters, and beeswax. Many Badger products contain extra virgin olive oil, which may sound odd, but it works great to produce a rich lather, along with shea butter and castor oil. Shea butter and castor oil provide moisturizing power, and essential oils of lemongrass and ginger refresh and revitalize. Badger's products are all about tapping into your soul and creating feelings of rejuvenation. One of my favorite Badger Balms is the Stress Soother, because the aromatherapy really does wonders to ease my tension.
But back to the soap! I really enjoy using this bar. It has a light scent, and I can definitely pick up on the lemongrass essential oils. It's very fresh smelling. I used this on my hands with no sponge or washcloth, and it created a nice lather. My skin was not left feeling waxy or over dried, the way I often feel with soaps that aren't made from natural ingredients. I think this would work well with a washcloth, etc., as well.
Badger Soaps come in a variety of other scents: Moroccan Mint, Rose Geranium, Unscented, Mailette Lavender, and Chamomile & Calendula. Badger offers plenty of products beyond soaps, as well. I highly recommend their balms and cocoa butter lip balms. They even have sunscreen and bug repellents, all of which are made from natural ingredients!
